Invest in ME Research Young/ECR for ME Conference London 2019
The Thinking the Future London 2019 Conference will be in London on 28th May 2019.
In 2019 the Thinking the Future conference for young/early career researchers will encapsulate the need to bring in new faces and new ideas to the field of ME research as well as provide a forum for networking for existing young/ecr researchers.
Following the successful 2018 inaugural conference a whole day will be allocated in 2019 for the event, which will take place in London in ME Conference Week.
The event is free for accepted participants who join this network.
It is possible that some contribution to travel costs may be available (this will be determined on an individual basis).
Who Can Participate
An Early Careers Researcher is defined an individual who is within a few years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or their first academic appointment.
This event will be open to postgraduate students and postdocs involved in biomedical research, and also medical students with an interest in biomedical research into ME.
It will provide an international forum where research into ME can be discussed, ideas can be generated and a network built to allow opportunities for those young or early career researchers who are already involved in research into ME, or involved in another research area which may be of relevance to understanding ME.
All applications for participation will be considered by the committee responsible for planning the agenda, which will include existing young researchers.
For those wishing to present please use the contact form below to contact us and arrange for abstracts/ideas to be sent for consideration for the conference.
Agenda for the Meeting
The agenda will include presentations from young/early career researchers and others. Details will be available in the agenda below as they are finalised.
Conference-day registration for invited delegates will be possible from 8.15 and the conference begins at 09.15 on Tuesday 28th May 2019.
Please note: Times and presentations are subject to change and Invest in ME Research accept no responsibility for cancellations, changes to presentations, changes to sequences of presentations or for the timings.

We are very pleased that Professor Jonas Blomberg from University of Uppsala in Sweden is to chair the Thinking the Future 2019 conference in London.
Professor Blomberg is a respected researcher who has been attending every one of our Biomedical Research intoME Colloquiums for the past nine years as well as the international ME conferences.
Together with NIH we are progressing the development of the international young/ecr network
for biomedcial researchers involved in, or interested in becoming involved in research into ME.
Also working together to arrange Washington and London Thinking the Future conferences in 2019.
Contact us for more information
The call for abstracts is now open. Those wishing to present their work can submit a short abstract (max 300 words) when registering.
Research and Training Grants assist early career scientists in pursuing research and training at a European host institution in a country other
than their own country of residence (and exceptionally to support research and training projects outside Europe)
After the success of the first event in 2018 we are planning to make this event into a whole day event.
We hope to have attendance from young/early career researchers from Europe, USA and Australasia and continue to build this important network for biomedical researchers who are working in the field of ME research or a related area.
